40 days of mourning
Ossetians grieve over war victims
Special church services are being held in South Ossetia and across Russia to remember those who died during Georgia’s aggression in the Caucasus republic. It’s traditional in Orthodox Christianity for mourners to attend church services 40 days after the death of their loved ones. Authorities in Tskhinval say more than 1,500 Ossetians lost their lives in the conflict.
